Happy Birthday to Pie Bar Marietta! On August 12, 2022, Pie Bar Marietta turned two years old! The whole day was a celebration, with balloons, complimentary itty bitties, and a special Birthday Pie Latte!
The day started busy, with a line out the door almost immediately after we opened! We offered a special Birthday Pie Latte for the birthday celebration, and we made a TON of those as well! It was a delicious vanilla almond syrup with whipped cream and fun rainbow sprinkles. It was amazing, I have to say. I drank way too many of them over the weekend. With the day starting busy, we enjoyed talking to each customer and telling them how Pie Bar Marietta just turned two! Everyone seemed as excited as we were!
Between 6 pm and 8 pm, we held a fun little reception with complimentary itty bitties! Everyone that came in seemed to enjoy them. We had caramel apple and bourbon chocolate pecan - both classic flavors! I had so much fun while working, that I stayed after my shift just to hang out! I read my book and chatted with our awesome Back of House team members that came to visit and celebrate. Then, I had so much fun serving customers that I worked the rest of the night. It was a really fun day!
Of course, to celebrate, we need to share some Pie Bar memories. One of my favorites is when I was with Pie Bar Marietta's team lead, Susanna, and a man came by on a unicycle. A unicycle! He "parked" it outside, came inside, and asked us to guess how big the wheel was. Spoiler alert: it was 3 feet in diameter. Another fun memory is the Scarecrows on the Square! We made a scarecrow based on a fairytale with a pie. We put a lot of work into him; former team member Elizabeth named him Travis, and she has since taken him home for the rest of her family to enjoy.
Another way to celebrate is by sharing my all-time favorite pie flavors. Of course at the top of the list is Brown Sugar Chess, everyone's favorite. Next is Rustic Peach Crumble, only available during peach season. You have to have it "all the way" (warm with ice cream on top). And in third place is Chocolate Peppermint Cream, which is only available during the winter season. It's the perfect festive flavor! These flavors are all my favorites, but there are so many more that are just to die for! Choosing a flavor can be hard, but that's okay, that's why we're here.
Pie Bar Marietta faced a few challenges here and there but we were able to get through them with ease, and meet some great people along the way!
Pie Bar Marietta has had a wonderful two years, and the one year I've been here has been fantastic! I love Pie Bar, and I'm glad all of you have been with us for so long. I hope y'all continue to enjoy our pie and shop and see ya next time!
